Fight Like A Girl...

Hello. The other day my cousin posted on Facebook that her friend had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, so I decided to make her a couple cards to give to her friend during the diffucult times to come. For this first one I used the Houndstooth background stamp from PinkByDesign for the patterned panel behind the girl. The girl is from the Forever Young cricut cartridge. I cut her at 5 inches and used the Extra Small Polka Dot  from to emboss her dress.
I used spun sugar distress ink to color her dress. The sentiment {which I think is awesome} is from the Breast Wishes set from PinkByDesign. Sorry the pictures look so weird. It's raining and gloomy here.

For this card I used the Race For a Cure Charity Set from MyCreativeTime. And as the name of the set suggests, some proceeds from this set go to charity. :) I embossed the ribbons on the background with white embossing powder and went over that with spun sugar distress ink. Spun sugar is the PERFECT pink for Breast Cancer cards!
I stamped the Extra Small Polka Dot and over that stamped the large focal point ribbon. I then heat embossed them with white embossing powder and cut around the ribbon. I dry embossed the black piece with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder and used my Martha Stewart score board to make two lines to put my gems in. The perfect sentiment is also from the Race For A Cure Charity Set from MyCreativeTime.
